You can do 50/50 but someone is probably going to have to pay child support.
This does not establish an attorney/client relationship. Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant County, Texas practice area. Principal office located in Lake Dallas, Texas.
Medicaid, food stamps and WIC are income dependent...your income. You must identify the other parent and acknowledge any child support. Failing to do so may cause you much larger problems. It is up to the OAG whether or not to pursue your ex for reimbursement to citizens who are providing services for your children.
In the event you decide to apply for services, I would not count on a 50/50 possession schedule to shield him from an OAG claim. And, that is beyond your control.
I agree that no child support will probably mean no aid programs.
I think it unlikely that a 12 hour on/12 hour off possession schedule will be approved by a judge. It does not sound feasible for more than a short time. Most 50/50 schedules switch after several days or a week.
You really should consult an attorney. You will probably do better with a different plan.
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
